The Real Saint George

From where I am, it is a place in which the mythological and the real blend and co-exist happily together, I see St. George as a friend of mine.  From my previous blogs it might be gleaned that I had a human friend reminiscent of St. George.  When we are named for saints we become for them a sort of Mise En Abyme.  It as though one is holding a mirror to a mirror and observing the many repetitions in the image.  We become a fraction of the namesake.  I created a poppet of St. George in an effort to help the G. I knew.  This was because, deep in my soul, I sensed he did not respect me, and thus did not value women.  The other reason was that because  he was a mountain biker,  I perceived his true identity to be that of a centaur.  I was hoping that by calling on St. George, something of the situation could be improved.  I feared that he might remain a Centaur for eternity.   That might sound silly, but I have a different reality than most in that the Angels and Saints are in communication with me.

I was researching St. George this morning and was interested to find that he is a patron saint to the mentally deranged.  I have held my life together fairly well these past few months and I would like to give some credit to him.  Thank-you, St. George!  My ideas are not mainstream, but I have not bothered anybody....no police have come to my door...no psyche arrests have gone down.

It is also interesting to know that the Muslims also revere St. George.  The mythological St. George slays a  Dragon.  There are a few Georges in history that are claiming to be the famous St. George so it is a bit confusing.  If one goes by my mise en abyme theory of identity, then of course, it makes no difference.

Do not think, though, that just because you are named for a saint that you will be off the hook on Judgement Day.  I would think that it helps to have clean hands and a pure heart.


This is a poppet portrait of the actual St. George.  I have neglected him.....he says he has advice for me.

Thanks so much for reading my blog.  Your thoughts are appreciated.
